Has anyone read (or heard in some cases, I guess) anything about his potential return? We're approaching a year since he lost fought and the announcement of the Jones/Bader matchup made me wonder what's going on since he was rumored to be fighting Jones in early '11.

Last I heard he released another book. Don't really know who he could fight. I'm thinking maybe the Tito Ortiz trilogy if Tito beats Hamil, or the Lil Nog fight I wish we would have gotten at 114.

I don't think theirs anyone else out there. Both winnable fights too. He seems to me mentally out of it, I don't think he's as motivated as he use to be so I'm happy to see hes taking a decent break, hopefully he'll be back more ready then ever.

If I remember correctly, his injury that pulled him out his last fight required surgery...perhaps he's just heeling. I also think he's been doing some promotional things...perhaps for his book as stated above. He did that hilarious interview a couple of months back where he denied rumors of a Jones matchup, but I don't remember if he discussed a timeframe for his next fight or not.

On the MMA Hour Ep. 49 from September 8 he said he was 75% and wanted to have a fight by the end of the year. He also said that he really only likes to fight in Vegas, so a educated guess would say the January 1 card or the Superbowl weekend card.

Given he was suppose to fight in detroit against jones
And publically said he would get his butt kicked
Fight never did finalize. I do think new years card. Probably co main event
Against rich franklin or lil nog

That's what I was thinking. I like the idea of both these fights, but I think Franklin might give him the better fight.

I think Lil Nog is a bad match-up for Forrest. Rich is a much more interesting fight imo.
